Spider veins are medically known as telangiectasia these are usually fine thread-like blue or red veins that can appear anywhere in the body but are commonly seen on the leg, ankles, face, chest, and abdomen, closer to the surface of your skin. On the legs, they are commonly seen on the outer (lateral) thigh and upper one-third of the calf.
These are usually associated or fed by larger blue veins called reticular veins which lie deeper in the skin compared to spider veins. These are very tiny veins, measuring less than 1 mm.
Treatment of spider veins in leg depends on the cause. If the cause is underlying varicose veins, then the underlying cause should be treated first otherwise the treatment will be unsuccessful.

They become more common as people get older and they're especially common in people aged over their 30s and pregnant women.
These veins can cover a very small or a very large amount of skin. Anywhere from your crotch to your ankle, the backs of your calves on the inside of your thighs. During pregnancy, in your vaginal area or around your anus.
